When Homlessness and Conventions Intersect

Tuesday, February 12, 2019 (1:00 PM to 2:00 PM)
1.00 CE Hours

Representatives from the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) sit on a panel to discuss homlessness in America today and the challenges the Convention Industry face - such as the impact on cities with the hightest percentages of displaced people, convention centers that are public spaces and "open to all," adjacent streets and loading dock areas that become "camps." Our panelists will share important statistics, national trends and creative solutions on how Centers and Bureaus can become part of the team to solve this growing epidemic. There will be time for Q&A for attendees to ask market-specific questions. If it's an issue at your venue or city, it's likely an issue elsewhere too.
